Emma Willis and Reggie Yates are hosting new BBC One adventure game show 'Prized Apart'.
The duo will present the new prime time Saturday night series which will feature 10 couples who are separated for six weeks but have still to work together on tasks to compete for a £1000,000 cash prize.
Emma said: "'Prized Apart' will be nail-biting, emotional and full of energy. I'll be there with the partners in the studio as they watch their loved ones go through their hellish challenges in mystery locations abroad. It should be lots of fun to see how far the contestants will go for their loved ones. I can't wait to get stuck in."
Reggie added: "I'll be getting to know the adventurers and will be with them every step of the way as they perform the tough challenges. It's going to be an incredible experience and I can't wait to get started."
And Reggie is delighted to be working with Emma - who also hosts 'The Voice UK' and 'Big Brother' - because the pair have such great chemistry.
He said: "It's a pleasure working with Emma, she's the wickedest ... I'm thrilled to be a part of such an exciting and fresh show."
BBC One's controller Charlotte Moore described Willis and Yates as the "perfect team" for the "game-changing Saturday night adventure show".
She said: "I've been looking for an entertainment format that feels genuinely game-changing and 'Prized Apart' delivers to the max. Jeopardy, heart and high emotion come together inside the studio and out."
'Prized Apart' will air on BBC One later this month.
